Can someone post Sarfraz 9-86 spell at melbourne 1979 - I refuse to believe it as the best
He had a spell of 1-85 at that stage and being an exponent of swing (did he do 'em with reverse swing or ball tampering ???)

Can't decide on a signature? Why not Zoidberg?

Thanks for that. I used to stay up all night to watch this series.Originally Posted by magsi23
ok - let me clarify - I used to admire Saf earlier - he had some good spells including one in Lahore in a forgotten series in '75 where he got 6-89 against a strong Windies lineup - Mushy was very appreciative of that spell
I happen to meet an ex Pak player in London who told me a few stories on Saf - jealousy , I wonder
anyway can someone post Saf's 9-86 on youtube ?
There was a lot of politics going around at the time Nawaz played cricket in Pakistan, so I'd take those comments with a grain of salt.Originally Posted by Krishna_j
Disagreed. Shoaib has bowled better.Originally Posted by nightprowler10
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
Not gonna argue with that as I haven't seen as much of Akhtar as I have Akram.Originally Posted by Mr Mxyzptlk
Simply amazing whenever I watch it.Originally Posted by nightprowler10
Gotta be up there with the 2 best consecutive deliveries ever when you consider the quality of the batsmen he dismissed. Unbelievable.
On test debut no less, IIRC.Originally Posted by Jono
Nah he debuted against WI about a year earlier. Still phenomenal though.
When you add also the match situation and the way in which he dismissed Dravid and Tendulkar (clean bowling them with in-swinging yorkers), its just ridiculously freakish.
